Race for the Place
Sunday, June 7, 2020
National Cancer Survivors Day
We are still planning to Race for the Place on Sunday, June 7th at Beachwood Place to help keep our programs and services free of charge to individuals and families coping with cancer. We are working on a Plan B in case we can't Race for the Place in person on June 7.
We invite you to join us by starting a team or signing up to walk or run at the Race for the Place website. We are grateful that University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center is our presenting sponsor this year.
The Gathering Place believes in treating all people with respect and dignity. We acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We pledge to create and maintain an environment that embraces and includes diverse traditions, ethnicity, experiences and orientation.
